    Welcome aboard mate, plenty of lads here know plenty more than I'll ever hope to so if you've ever got any questions about pretty much anything, this is the place to ask!
    Can't wait to see some pics!

    Hi Greg and welcome aboard!

    I also own a 260 but mine has a home made radar arch on it that I built for just under thirty bucks.(The marina wanted a thousand bucks for a stainless one!!!)

    My friend Chris used to own a 260 years ago and his had the factory arch on it. It was a red boat and I saw the picture in his hallway of his house. I will see if I can get a jpg of it from him and post it here.

    Meanwhile, here is a couple of pics of my 260

    Wow that's impressive!
    Mine has twin 5.7's and I get about 57 on the gps WOT.
    I can't seem to push the threshold anymore than that?
